Souperbowl Sunday

8 Feb

I don’t really care for football.  I don’t really care for pizza, and I especially don’t care for wings.  So, I made yesterday into a Souperbowl Sunday!

This is one of the most simple recipes ever, as minestrone is a forgiving soup.  Add whatever, season with whatever, and then eat a big bowl and smile.

Here are the specifics for this particular bowl of soup:

Two large carrots, chopped

One stalk of celery, sliced thickly

Two or Three cloves of garlic, minced

A half cup of frozen green beans

A half cup of frozen onions

Three and a half cups of water

Two vegetable bouillon cubes

Twenty-eight ounce can of crushed tomatoes

Three-quarters of a teaspoon dried basil

One tablespoon dried parsley

A pinch of rosemary

Add all of that to a soup pot, and bring it to a boil.  Cover, and simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes.  Then add:

Three small zucchini, cubed

Fifteen ounce can of kidney beans, drained

A half cup whole wheat elbow macaroni

Bring it back to a boil, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the macaroni is cooked.

I got six big servings out of this pot of soup.  A little cheese or nutritional yeast would go well with this as well.

Pizza and wings?  What pizza and wings?
